Its not the Versailles in Paris...
Its not the Schonbrun in Vienna...
Its not the Royal Palace in Madrid...

But Drottningholms Palace is still big, beautiful, and worth half your day. An added bonus of being unpopular: less tourist crowds! We didn't see a lot of tourists as we wandered the various ritzy royal rooms, we were along most of the time...fantastic! Its not quite as fancy as the more popular and larger European palaces, but Drottingholm holds up well. The surrounding park and gardens are green, gorgeous and full of friendly geese.

110SEK per an adult was definitely worth, but we paid an extra 40SEK each to see the vintage theater. If you're into theater and live shows, its definitely worth extra SEK.

We skipped visiting the palace itself because it was a wonderful sunny day and we preferred to go for a walk in the gardens ! Really beautiful place ! The fountains with sculptures of ancient heroes, the nicely trimmed bushes in the shape of a maze, the picturesque houses of the Chinese village,flocks of geese resting in the meadow of the so-called English park and a pair of swans floating in the pond with their little one... Definitely we haven't wasted our time in there !

It's an easy trip out to the palace. Take the metro green line to Brommaplan and switch to a bus to the palace gates. You can walk around the grounds for free or pay to look inside. It's a bit extra for a guided tour but I'd recommend it.

Nice place and nice palace - it gives you an idea and knowledge about Swedish history and rulers. The palace is not so big neither so rich as similar objects, you can visit in the other European countries but some rooms are really unique. I was genuinely impressed with the library and with the hall with the portraits of European monarchs ruling in the 19th century.
The surroundings of the palace - a combination of water and gardens - is also very interesting. It was a bit empty and grey, as I was there in cold April day and vegetation starts late in Scandinavia - therefore, I suggest to visit the place in late summer or early autumn, even if it will be more crowded that time.

Definitely worth the price to see both the palace and the palace theater。
Visited at off-peak season, must join the guided tour if you wanna visit the theater. But the ticket is definitely worth it!!!
Staffs are friendly and willing to answer your questions. The palace and theater are well preserved!

We got the ferry from the city which took an hour and was very scenic. The walk around the grounds was really beautiful, especially with all the autumn trees. We did a self guided tour of the palace, which wasn't worth the admission fee to be honest. The rooms did have information in Swedish and English within them but it was only a few rooms. The guided tour may have made it worth it, but unfortunately we couldn't find out

Plan on spending more time outside vs in. The interior is of course impressive (its a palace, what's not to be impressed over). But compared to other palaces in Europe, the grounds here are like no other! Seriously could spend a day just walking them.

BEST seen in spring or summer. After October 1st, many things are prepared for winter.

Also, recommend the theater tour. Its short & informative.

My family and I had a very calm and relaxed visit to this palace. We took the metro then the bus to the palace, had lunch at the adjoining palace cafe before making our way into the palace to take a look around. It was so quiet in the palace, it felt like we had the palace to ourselves, save for the occasional staff we saw walking around.

Once you've been to Versailles, try as you might to be objective, it's difficult not to use the French palace as a benchmark for other palaces you might visit. Perhaps it's because it's because this palace is still being used, as opposed to Versailles, that there weren't as many 'things' to see apart from the decor of the rooms.

The highlight for me was seeing the fenced off library and the walk through the gardens, which have been kept very well.

The Chinese pavilion is only opened during May to September, so unfortunately I was only able to take a look at the building's exterior. In order to look inside the Theatre, you must go in as part of a tour. As the Chinese pavilion is currently closed, the combination ticket means access to only the palace and the theatre.

Drottningholm was my favorite site to visit in Stockholm. We took the ferry from City Hall and it was a very pleasant ride. The palace is beautiful and they have a large garden area to explore as well.
